When business tycoon Daniel Boone Jennings bungles the elopement of his daughter Beatrice to bakery truck driver Jerry Grant, the snobbish Mrs. Boone is thrilled because she opposes the match. Mrs. Boone is determined to marry Beatrice to a member of the upper crust, and consequently, when Mrs. Georgia Whitley announces that she and her daughter Josephine are spending the weekend at the the country estate of Michael Prescott, she decides that the Boone family also should visit the country. To avoid spending time with the pompous Prescotts, Daniel pretends that a telegram he receives from his old friend, Horace Morris, inviting him to come fishing in Washington, Oklahoma, is really the Vice President summoning him to Washington, D.C. Daniel sets out for Washington wearing a top hat and fishing boots, and after he finds Chief Poison Arrow's son hiding in Horace's wagon, he is made an honorary member of the Indian tribe. Two weeks later, Daniel returns home and is greeted as a hero at the train station by reporters who think he was in Washington, D. C. discussing Indian affairs with Vice President Quimby. At the station, Mrs. Boone introduces her husband to their houseguest, the stodgy Michael Prescott, who she hopes will soon be her son- in-law. Upon arriving home, Daniel finds Poison Arrow and his companions, Wagon Track and Frozen Foot, smoking peace pipes in his study. They are followed by Horace, who has been sent to return the Indians to the reservation. When Mrs. Boone discovers her visitors, Daniel bluffs that the three were sent from Washington, D. C., prompting his wife to score a social coup by throwing a party for the Indians and Quimby. To placate his wife, Daniel dictates a telegram inviting Quimby to the party, then tears it up after she leaves his office. Unknown to Daniel, however, his secretary sends a copy of the invitation to Washington, D. C., Daniel plans to have Horace pose as Quimby, but when Horace is arrested on the night of the party, Jerry, who knows of the plan, decides to stand in for him. While Daniel goes to post Horace's bail, Jerry arrives at the party disguised as Quimby and is introduced to Beatrice, who recognizes him. Soon after, Daniel and Horace return home, and Horace goes upstairs to tidy up his disguise. Before he can make his entrance, however, Horace becomes locked in the bathroom and climbs out through the window. Daniel, unable to find Horace, hurriedly dresses as Quimby just as the real Vice President arrives and is seated at the dinner table. When Quimby excuses himself to take a phone call from Washington, D. C., Daniel, disguised as the Vice President, comes down the stairs and sees Horace and Jerry. The three imposters are arrested by Quimby's guards and taken to the Vice President. Amused by the deception, Quimby appoints Daniel to the Committee on Indian Affairs. When Daniel sighs that the only thing he really desires is for Prescott to disappear, his "blood brothers" kidnap the prig, clearing the way for Beatrice and Jerry to elope

"When druggist John Jones plans to give the opening address at the Neighborhood Druggists' Association convention held on the 4th of July at Crystal Lake, his family of three sons, two daughters, wife and mother, insists that they be allowed to come along and convinces him to buy a trailer for the outing. After various mishaps occur on the first day of travel, the Jones family stops for the night to set up camp. John instructs his skeptical sons, Jack and Roger, on the proper way to build a fire, but succeeds only in filling the trailer with smoke. His teen-aged daughter Bonnie climbs a tree to escape a playful bearcub, of whom she is terrified, and she is greatly relieved when a stranger, Tom Williams, pulls the cub away. Williams, who tells the family that he was left behind by his train, fixes the stove in the trailer and successfully intercedes when a deputy sheriff threatens to fine John for building a fire in a restricted area. At Crystal Lake, Williams courts Bonnie, and Jack falls for a vacationing girl named Mabel, who has a penchant for fast boats and peppy music, while John prepares his speech and his bookish adolescent daughter Lucy attempts to write a novel. After Jack and Mabel stave a rented motorboat, the owner, Mr. Sweeney, allows Jack to spade a large plot of land to pay for the repairs. Jack tricks Roger, an extremely entrepreneurly-minded adolescent, into digging the plot to find Indian arrowheads to sell. Roger, displeased, sneaks up on Jack kissing Mabel and takes their picture. When he threatens to show the photo to the fellows back home, Jack is forced to agree to Roger's price for the negative. Meanwhile, a Department of Justice official comes looking for Williams, really a fugitive from the Illinois State Penitentiary named Silky Walker. After Williams tricks the unsuspecting Bonnie into leaving with him in the family car, Roger finds a typed farewell note. John, with Jack and Roger, borrows Mr. Sweeney's car, which he learns too late has no brakes, and chases Williams and Bonnie. After Bonnie threatens to jump and John, unwittingly, does not let Williams get around him, Williams stops the car and concedes defeat. The family learns that the farewell note was from Lucy's romantic manuscript, and on the trip home, after John points out that they should have nothing more to do with strangers, he nevertheless stops to pick up a lone boy hitchhiking, whose large family, hiding behind bushes, then pile into the trailer"--AFI catalog, 1931-1940
